You need to install samba and swat (Samba Web Administration Tool).
Set it up like you would set up a windows server through a comprehensive web based gui:

http://server:901/

username: root
password: [your linux box root password].

You should be aware that it will require substantial knowledge to set up and administer a network like that, even with GUI like Swat.

Best regards!

You need to setup samba server for that.
Then create share in the linux server.
Then access from windows by :
net use s: \\linux_server\share name
Replace linux_server with your samba server hostname/ip address.

Truly I misunderstood the question completely.

If Linux server is headless (aka not running X), then using putty (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/) for windows and SSH to the server is the solution.
If the server is running X, then installing a xrdp (http://xrdp.sourceforge.net) on the server will enable XP users to connect to the server via RDP protocol.

Best regards!
